Erik I find one coat of the light chipping is about right let the paint dry for at least a hour other wise it will come off in chunks, so try it out first on some scrap!

SPUD-N-ATOR ,

They were out of th Light Chipping so I got th Heavy,but I think it'll work out fine as the Weather then at that time during Cherkassy Pocket saw Snow , Rain Snow , Rain etc. OS I think th white was h would have become very worn.

So Do I let th Chipping FX set for an hour & then Shoot some Tamiya White & then let that rest for an Hour & then come back with a brush & distilled water ?

*side bar - I'll shoot th Base tonight & camo tomorrow. Pix soon !! *

Thanx for th tips !!

It only takes a few mins to dry so after about 15 mins I shoot it. Let it dry and get to work on it once the paint has had time to dry. And warm water will do not that distilled stuff. As I say test before you go full on because the heave chipping does exactly that and try out how many coats you are happy with, it says 2-3 on the bottle but I find 1 of the light is enough

Hold on to Your Knick'as Mate. I didn't like th camo , so I reshot it tonight. I wanna do some wear & dry brushing to th Kubel as it sits with MIG productions faded Dark Yellow. just a bit . Then I'll get to th White Wash .... still thinkin' about it .... if I think about it too long I'll just throw caution to th Wind & get into th WW ..... ???








I reshot th tires/rims in Model Air Dk. Yellow & stripped it in M.A. Dk Green ( same as th Kubel). Obviously th Tires will need a touch up.​

So .... Dry brushing on th Kuble or just Get on with it ????
